Video Analysis: Striker Movement

A world-class striker is required to be quick, evasive & clinical in the final third. Top coach and regular PDP contributor, Dan Wright presents his excellent video analysis of some of the best examples of forward play in the world.


Strikers are who the fans pay their money to see. Suarez, Messi, Griezmann, Ronaldo, Vardy, what do they all have in common? The attributes that make a world-class finisher. Whether it’s guile, speed, composure or first-class technique, all of these players perform their goal-scoring roles in a variety of ways.

Dan Wright presents an expert analysis of the key movements a top striker needs to have in their repertoire in order to put the final touches on positive, attacking play. Some of the movements included in the video are as follows:

  • Runs between
  • Runs in front
  • Timing of runs
  • Opposite movements
  • Clever runs
  • Rotations
  • Blindside

The challenge to take away? How can you create sessions which provide challenging, opposed opportunities for your players to develop these movements and finishing techniques.
